The task-cuing paradigm: A user's guide

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter discusses the task-cuing paradigm. The author provides a user-oriented review of the cuing paradigm that appears to have become among the most widely used task switching paradigms. Unlike the three recent reviews that focused on the main findings and their interpretation, the present review is more methodological. It focuses on issues one needs to consider when designing task switching experiments. Each section is ended with some tentative recommendations. Given the fact that this essay concerns the cuing paradigm, the first recommendation is to never take it for granted that analogous effects obtained in the cuing paradigm reflect the same underlying process as that in other paradigms
